@unfa Exactly like money. Agree. And any other currency.

@tio Not exaclty like money, because I can at least use money to exchange my work for goods and services.

@unfa You can do that with other currencies too . Work = making videos, webdesign, whatever. Then you get paid in some other cryptocurrency. Then you buy stuff with it.
